DH and I are in the process of finding a new place to live (state law says that once there are more than two people living there, you need to live in a 2 bedroom). Our budget is tight and we're kind of limited in what we can find in good neighborhoods. We went to a place today that is the perfect size and a great location. The only problem is that while it's a really small complex (4 apartments in total and we're on the top right) ALL of the neighbors in our building smoke. Well, maybe not the little kids, but the adults.
The carpets smell like smoke and overall, the apartment smells like smoke. I'm sorry if I come across as naive and immature, but what can we do to cover the smell? How would it affect our LO when he comes? Neither DH nor I have ever smoked and we didn't grow up around smokers so we're pretty dumb on the issue. I'm only desperate because time is running out and we haven't had much luck in the past few months finding places that fit our criteria and budget.
